    i just missed you. i was heading to walmart myself to pickup gas drops for the bebe..

    actually, i would have noticed you anyways. i always have an eye out for fellow ADV'ers. Yup, i was on the strom. but where i saw you, you really wouldn't have noticed me anyways.

    Grabbed the tag at 1463 new Hope Rd, cross junction, VA

    While I was out, I went ahead and snagged the RTE tag.

    Apperently the long ride was too much for them as they didn't seem to get along at the ducks new home.

    After this pic the duck decided to fly the coop and hide.

    The road that it is hiding could also be a shoe center in Winchester. Beware, the road is gravel and it had fresh gravel down so the bike wanted to sink. I did fine with the NC but someone with a bigger bike could have some issues.

    If you put a sail on the bike you wouldn't even need the engine today.

    Thanks, I really like it. I'm debating on making it a little more off road friendly, but I like to tour with it so for now I'm not making anymore changes to it.

    i REALLY like my Anakee 3's for the kind of backroads i partake in. dirt/gravel. no "hardcore" offroading.

    New Tag.

    Hints: The road is wet and the gap is dry. The road leads to a town in WV whose name is also the name of a male bird that can't procreate. *Edit* It's actually not a town name - It's an unincorporated community.

    The finder of the duck also scores the LED flashlight in the pic. It has a nice fresh battery in it. A man can never have too many flashlights... :)

    [​IMG]

    The duck is hiding at the base of the two stumps to the right in this pic.

    All covered up from sight.
